The Bluff Wilderness Hiking Trail

About This Experience

The Bluff Wilderness Hiking Trail is located within the Five Bridge Lakes Wilderness Area which is located in Mi’kma’ki, the unceded and unsurrendered ancestral land of the Mi’kmaq (L’nu). This area was designated under the Wilderness Areas Protection Act in October 2011.

The Bluff Trail is south of Highway 103 where it crosses the Chebucto Peninsula just west of K’jipuktuk (Halifax), Nova Scotia. It begins inside the Woodens River watershed and climbs onto the high ground (“The Bluff”) between the Woodens River watershed and the Nine Mile River watershed to the east.
